Andras Nemeth lost in a fight for purple jacket
Another Poker Masters series finished at PartyPoker. This time, all the tournaments were held exclusively in PLO format. Traditionally, the leaderboard of the best players of series was conducted, and its winner got a purple jacket.
Andras Nemeth was a top contender for the first place in the leaderboard. The Hungarian player managed to win in the three tournaments at once, including the high roller event for $25 500. After such results, it seemed that the fate of a purple jacket was determined, but Nemeth was beaten by 1 point. The Finnish poker player Eelis Pärssinen managed to be ahead of Andras.
The fan of Omaha Eelis Pärssinen showed the most stable results at Poker Masters PLO series. Over the eight game days, Eelis managed to reach ITM zone 6 times, and one of these results became the victorious one in $25 500 tournament.
He also has two second places and two third places in his arsenal, as well as one small cash in one of the events of series. In total, Eelis earned $735 000 at Poker Masters PLO. For the victory in leaderboard, he was awarded a purple jacket and free ticket to ME for $51 000.
